CHARCO FIREFIGHTER PAST-PKG


Take package

A Charlotte county battalion chief under fire tonight.

After video shows him attacking a teenager - and walking around with a gun in his pocket.

Matteo

"I didn't think a man would actually be pulling my hair like this, thats something kids do"

Police say Jon Miller got out of his his car and approached two teenagers at this stop light in Venice.

"He opens my car door, grabs me by the arm and tries to pull me out"

"We're going to have fun with you Because he was claiming he was a cop and I was going to get in trouble after"

He took the teens cell phone and drove off. the teens tracked the phone to his home to get it back, that's when they say Miller came out of his house.

"He took two steps back and then pulled out his gun and started aiming it at the both of us, so I told Matteo start rolling up the window"

Police eventually arrested Miller for battery and burglary after seeing the cell phone video.

"I think the scariest part was waiting in the car for someone to help but no one came"

Nat

Miller was demoted in 2009 -- after an internal investigation showed behavior lacking in judgement, professionalism, and leadership. The report said the environment existing under him was intimidating, chaotic, and belligerent. He had to take part in an anger management program. But an arbitrator found the county took too long to discipline Miller after learning about the allegations, so the punishment was overturned.

"Ridiculous we thought theses people were supposed to protect us, but now they're attacking us"

IN CHARLOTTE COUNTY, DEVIN TURK, ABC7. Return to index of stories...

VETERAN AND FEMA-PKG


MORE THAN 15-HUNDRED TIMES—

CAPTAIN JOHN "GIDDY UP" BUNCH HAS GOTTEN HIS BOAT READY TO TAKE A SERVICE MAN OR WOMAN OUT ON THE WATER -- TO EITHER TRY AND CATCH A TROPHY — OR SIMPY ENJOY SOUTHWEST FLORIDA.

"I always swore, to myself, I would pay it forward."

A MARINE VETERAN HIMSELF—

HE FOUNDED "OPERATION OPEN ARMS."

HE'S NEVER ASKED FOR MONEY.

NEVER TAKEN A SALARY.

BUT HAS STILL MANAGED TO GIVE OUT MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN BENEFITS --

AND OFFERED FREE VACATIONS TO VETERANS.

RE-CHARGING COUNTLESS SOULS RETURNING FROM WAR.

"Their spirit is returned to them, their enthusiasm is returned to them and their will to go back and fight harder knowing this is available to them when they come back even is better."

HE'S BEEN THERE FOR HIS COUNTRY.

NOW HE THINKS HIS COUNTRY SHOULD BE THERE FOR HIM.

HE CALLS ST. JAMES CITY HOME.

AND JUST LIKE MANY OF HIS NEIGHBORS—

HE WAS HIT HARD BY HURRICANE IRMA.

"It's been very difficult. It's just been. it's like having the life sucked out of you."

BUT FOR CAPTAIN BUNCH.

IRMA WAS JUST THE START OF HIS OWN WAR. WITH FEMA.

"I would take 20 years in the Marine Corps, compared to 20 days with FEMA."

MAJOR ROOF DAMAGE HAS FOUND IT'S WAY INSIDE.

HIS INSURANCE DOESN'T COVER IT --

BUT HE HAS BEEN DENIED ASSISTANCE FROM FEMA -- A PROGRAM RUN BY THE COUNTRY HE SERVED. AND CONTINUES TO SERVE IN A DIFFERENT WAY.

"What I've personally been able to do to help my country has not been returned by my country with any form of appreciation by FEMA."

IN FACT—

HIS CHARITABLE WORK LANDED HIM AN HONOR ONLY A FEW RECEIVE EACH YEAR—

THATS HIM. NEXT TO COUNTRY MUSIC STAR TRACE ADKINS. ACCEPTING THE ARMY OUTSTANDING CIVILIAN SERVICE MEDAL.

AND EVEN NOW—

WHILE HE'LL APPRECIATE THE HELP — HE HOPES ALL OF FLORIDA AND THOSE AFFECTED ARE TAKEN CARE OF.

"And it's not so important for Capt. John Giddy Up Bunch gets his needs satisfied."

JUST AS HE — TAKES CARE OF THOSE — WHO REACH OUT TO HIM.

"That's the way you take care of business. You get a problem, you solve it, you move on to the next person. And that's all that FEMA should be concentrating on now — not putting everybody off and thinking of excuses." Return to index of stories...


VETERAN AND FEMA-LIVE


HE HAS RECENTLY FILED AN APPEAL WITH FEMA — FIGHTING ITS DECISION TO DENY ASSISTANCE.

HE SAYS IT TOLD HIM THE NEXT TIME SOMEONE WILL BE OUT TO RE-EXAMINE THE DAMAGE WILL BE IN 60 TO 90 DAYS.
